Making the decision to have a joint replacement is indeed a journey. You’ve probably been living with pain that has decreased your ability to enjoy even some of the simplest things in life. Our joint replacement journals show some of the hobbies, travels, and other activities our patients would like to get back to after recovery. Whether enjoying nature or tending the garden, our sincere hope is that you’ll appreciate less pain and a more active lifestyle because of your joint replacement!

As you prepare for your surgery, rest assured that you have selected one of the nation’s leading orthopedic care teams. Having done thousands of successful knee replacements, our orthopedic surgeons and the skilled staff at PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center make sure you’ll receive the best of care in our Bone and Joint Center.

Our Joint Journey journal is part of your care. The information is a general guide to help you prepare for your surgery. The doctors and staff who will provide your care put it together, but you always should follow the instruction provided by your medical team, even when they are different from the instructions in this journal.

We have separate journals for knee and hip. They number about 40 pages. We invite you to download the PDF for review. (It may take a few minutes depending on the speed of your computer.) You will receive the actual journal in bound format upon scheduling of your joint replacement in the Rebound office.
